    I'm just trying to get some posts under my belt before I submit to search engines and directories, or do any link exchanges. Aside from that I have gotten no visitors from any blogging services.

    I'm looking on any and all feedback, especially in regards to building a traffic base.

    Thank you!

    Interesting subject matter for a single-topic blog. Don't think I've come across it before. Theme is nice enough, clean and well organized, though I'm not sure it really screams "this blog is about tees!"

    Good luck.

    Yah.... I think you ought to develop a "t-shirt-shaped" look....

    I agree. Interesting subject matter and quite possibly unique-ish. If nothing else, I like that about your blog.

    It would be nice to see some of that T-Shirt unique-ness reflected in your design though...

    I didn't know this, but there are actually around 10 t-shirt related blogs. I think there's plenty for me to write about.

    I'm using t-shirt images for the background of theme, though I'm not set on it as my ideal layout. A simple white background would make it easier to navigate.

    Well, when I looked at your blog, I thought "wow, would really be cool if it was black, red or dark blue, with the header in a 'stretched out flat sleeves look' on a white background, and sidebars in white with the 'shirt body' for the posts"....

    Which would certainly be distinctive and original.

    Ahhhh. When I looked at your blog but minutes ago it was just a white background with no images visible. A little bland for my taste, and I agree with V. Something stylish, distinct and original would really impress me in the creativity department.

    Now, however, there's a grey Marilyn Monroe type image repeating all over the place. Doesn't look good - but that's just my opinion.

    I would agree that the "Marilyn Monroe-ish" background is very distracting and unattractive. Perhaps that picture would serve okay if it were greyed out to about 30% gray, and not repeated. I think, though, the image speaks only to the testosterone crowd. Your topic of t-shirts seems more general, and your presentation of pictured tees is fun.
